    The headquarters for the Dallas Cowboys remain on track to make their move to Frisco.

    The city's Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday approved the preliminary plan for the multi-million dollar site, without any discussion.

    The site plan calls for an indoor stadium and two outdoor practice fields near the corner of two new streets - Gridiron Road and Varsity Drive.

    The teams headquarters would sit on Cowboys Way, surrounded by a luxury hotel, retail and restaurant space , along with several office buildings, one of them topping out at 13 stories tall.

    “We have a great team working on it”, says Frisco Mayor Maher Maso, “the Cowboys are involved, the city of Frisco's involved, the school districts involved, and so they're coming up with some really unique looks."

    “I’m very excited about what I've seen so far, and it’s still evolving, and we're going to see even better things out of it," Maso said.

    The Cowboys still need to come up with a design for their new headquarters, but architects are already working on the indoor stadium and practice fields, which will also be used by the city and Frisco ISD.

    Groundbreaking is expected sometime this summer.
